Aisling is Good Grief Festival’s Event Director. Born in Australia and raised in Ireland, Aisling’s father died in a car crash in Adelaide when she was three. A year later, her family moved to Dublin where her mother is from. In 2020, she returned to Australia for the first time in 20 years to reconnect with long lost family and friends and pick up the fragments of a life she never lived there. Her pilgrimage brought huge healing as she found new meaning and acceptance of the losses that defined her life for many years. 

For the past decade, Aisling has been helping to create events of all shapes and sizes, driven by her passion to bring people together to share meaningful and healing experiences. Her work includes Good Grief, Wild & Well Festival, Shambala Festival, The Good Life Experience, Circus City, Love Saves The Day and many more.
